As 2014 rolls to it’s close, the real estate market tends to slow down and exhale, as well. With only 88 homes on the market, inventory remains LOW as do interest rates. This demonstrates a truly balanced market, one that’s a great time to both buy and sell real estate. All market reports that we’ve been reading predict the rates to remain low through the first quarter of 2015.
Reflecting back on the year, we are feel incredibly grateful to serve our Ojai Valley and thank you for all of your support this year. To top off a great year, we’d like to take share an end-of-year, Happy~Ending story:
Two years ago I showed properties to a gentleman from the East Coast who was hungering for an architecturally distinctive vintage home. We came up empty and he flew home, but not before pausing in front of a classic 1890 Farmhouse on the East End where he said: ” now THAT is the kind of home I’m looking for!”. We sent letters to the absentee homeowner and never heard a word. But, 5 weeks ago a “for sale” sign went up… and this week, we have one extremely happy client who is the proud new owner of an architecturally distinctive vintage home complete with an enormous old red barn nestled amongst a gorgeous 21 acre orange grove!!!
